9:23 pm
the first slide is on auto burglaries there's been a 14 percent in auto burglaries tb 2013 to 2014 we haven't been able to the statistics this next slide for the first quarter of 2015 so in 2011 assembly bill one 09 a jail overcrowding so the state of california gets under a certain jail population that was decided all the low level offenders will get out many are property crimes and many had multiple convictions in san francisco around 6 hundred it self-mean all those folks were not going to grouting get out but all got
9:24 pm
out at the same time it changed our patrol system statewide a lot of the numbers are not specific to san francisco but across the state of california there's been an increase in property crime since the in violation of ab one 0910 thousand 3 hundred auto burglaries in 2011 that went up to 12 thousand in 12 and 17 thousand in notifying and nearly 20 thousand in 2015 in the first quarter of 2015 the first two months we don't have the march numbers p a 49 percent many auto burglaries in the first, few months of 2015. >> the next slide is going to speak of vehicle theft which is
9:25 pm
also up again, it jumps from 4 thousand 1 hundred plus in 2011 to 43 hundred plus in 2012, nearly 59 hundred in 2013 and 6 thousand in 2014 the number of vehicle theft by four percent is modest a big jump if 2010 and in the first, few months of 2015 an 18 percent increase in vehicle theft we say a property crime situation here in san francisco. >> thefts which do not include automobile burglary in each year from 11 it bumps up and again up in 2014 a little qualifier proposition 47 kicked in
9:26 pm
immediately in november of 2014 so a lot of felon offenses that might have been added to the 14 thousands are not counted as felons because their miscellaneous so prior to 2014 petty thousandth the rest i submit e theft changed and a lot of the like a person going in with contains that might intent to shoplifting they entered with the intent to shoplift is now a petty theft under $900 those are changes that were voted inform this is the new landscape that is not including u including auto burglary through the first few months of the year are up 6
9:27 pm
percent and then if you look at residential commercial and residential again, it might seem like an euanonymously it is down seven hundred but all the retail thefts methods only for the last month of 2014 and that's the case as well here on the next slide when that speaks to the first few months where we were in the first, few months of 2014 was prop 47 so a lot of the felons from last year are misdemeanors there's is a felon
9:28 pm
misdemeanor category this is the auto theft and total property crimes once the and again, this is a 125id thing not just going on in san francisco all of california is working on this concern and 2011 ab one 09 up in property crime it is about flat between 13 and 14 but in the last few months of 2015 a lot of felons were reclassified as miss dorms and the total property crime is up 22 percent as you can see over 8 thousand property crimes in the first, few months
9:29 pm
as far as the arrests as you can see in 2010 that was the last time the police department was at full staffing in 20092010 the arrests go down with the numbers in staff per officer as are the same the last slide i was talk to my folks here we believe that that is an anomaly that is a impurity area it all of a sudden became a 5 thousand but i apologize for that 2014 status is probably more consistent with around 2 thousand arrests which again we're down 15 percent in officers that is about what the reduction is over 2011 so honestly the officers are doing what we can per officer as we
9:30 pm
get the 3 hundred officers back that kwldz about 60 thousand more shifts worked so the presence of officers along the commercial corridors and we've spoken about the dedicated details but the primary focus has been awhile we'll had this reduction in force is effecting crime so this changes the landscaper we will catch up with crime. >> you mentioned the arrests rate i guess per officer is around what. >> about the same so you look at 201125 hundred that would have been full staffed at 2 thousand officers now
